Doré Rothberg McKay began 30 years ago with Carl Doré who opened a law firm in far west Houston where real estate was booming. He became one of the first lawyers certified as a specialist in Residential & Commercial Real Estate by the State Bar of Texas.  As the Firm grew, so did our breath of experience in giving legal advice in real estate matters. Because of the amount of work that we do in the oilfield, we have expertise when it comes to liens and contractors getting paid for there work. The Firm has clients in the industry which we regularly advise and review real estate contracts and closings.
